We have a fantastic opportunity to join a Local Authority in the North West as an interim Adult Social Care and Childcare Lawyer. The client is looking for a lawyer experienced within both fields for a 3 month period, with the strong possibility of extension.


You will be responsible for:

  • Handling a full caseload of adult social care and childcare files
  • Dealing with Court of Protection, deprivation of liberty and mental health matters
  • Dealing with IRH hearings, EPOs, CMCs, final hearings and contested hearings
  • Attending planning meetings and maintaining a good relationship with the client department

Recent adult social care and childcare experience is essential, as the successful candidate needs to hit the ground running. Previous Local Authority experience is desirable but not essential.

The client is also willing to accept applications from those with experience in childcare or adult social care alone.
